If peer pressure has you boiling over, it’s high time you got yourself a pressure cooker — and you can get the Instant Pot DUO Plus today for about 40% off.
The 6-quart version is selling for $80 today as part of Amazon’s Deal of the Day. That price means it’s $20 less than the smaller 3-quart version. What will you do with your Instant Pot, you ask? Conjure miracles, my friend. Miracles. The 9-in-1 labeling indicates the Instant Pot’s myriad functions: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, saute, yogurt maker, sterilizer, and warmer. Before getting my own, I always puzzled over that last one, but the Instant Pot is the best way to keep party meatballs warm throughout your big event. If six quarts isn’t enough for you, consider the 8-quart variant.
Want more inspiration for dishes? Needing to inject ourselves with some strong chicken soup during a recent two-day cold, my partner and I dropped a bunch of ingredients into the pot, sealed it up, and left it for about an hour and a half (as opposed to the more typical eight or nine) — and the result was not just perfectly flavorful, fatty, and delicious, but also helped us heal. What ingredients, you ask? Sorry — my mom would kill me.
